Description

This is an extremely rare, early 1980s R/C toy with lovely, realistic detail. It’s based on a Nikko chassis manufactured in 1982, but this particular edition was released by Nikko in 1984. It’s best suited to a collector, and was only ever available in Europe.

It has been tested and is 100% working. It’s in good condition overall. It does have some wear – scuffs at edges, scuffs underneath etc. Please see the photos to understand the condition.

The decals are nice. The vehicle is relatively clean. Most importantly – it runs perfectly. The headlights come on while running. It also has both High and Low gear speeds, and both operate smoothly.

The only other flaw is that the transmitter sticks have broken off, leaving shorter stumps. This does not affect operation – you can easily control the vehicle via the stumps, the same as if the sticks were there. It’s not uncomfortable.

This is a rare one from the early days when Nikko made highly realistic R/C toys.
